A Small BSG Season 4 Spoiler

I just saw a small Battlestar Galactica season 4 spoiler at SyFy Portal.  I have to say that I'm a little annoyed at reading this piece of information.

Basically, the spoiler says that BSG is adding a new female character to the cast.  Her name is Kendra Taggert (same initial as Starbuck, coincidence? ) and she's a Major who was stationed on Pegasus.  Supposedly Major Taggert went a little loopy after the initial cylon attack (a la Starbuck?!)

I'm not thrilled at all that BSG would introduce a new character at this late stage.  Ron Moore had already said that the show is moving into its third act in a 3-act structured play.  I would much rather TPTB focus on the stories involving the main characters we all come to love and care about through out the years.

Also I'm a little annoyed at Ron Moore's propensity at recycling his ideas.  Case in point:  the much overly used flashbacks, the "head figures" that nobody else can see for multiple characters, the tendency to use intercut scenes, and now another loopy young female character...

I wonder if this new character is being setup to be the last cylon?  Why else introduce a new character when the story is moving towards its finale? *sigh*

I'll try very hard to watch without preconceived ideas. If this is to be the last season, I really want to enjoy it.

That is a very good attitude! I tends to get worked up prematurely because I care so much about this show. I have my favorites (namely the Adama boys), and I get too "protective" of their story lines.

You are very right that adding a new character will change the dynamics between the characters. My thing is, the characters and their dynamics are already very fascinating and rich, why change that?

I'm already wrapped up in the established characters, I don't think I'd be interested in investing time and efforts to get to know a new character, especially when the story is about to reach its climax.

It's just that I want more Lee-centered stories...

Hear, hear!

Right with you there...
